    Intro:  Main Riff x4
     
    / G5 - - - / - - - - /
    We all came out to Montreux on the
    / - - F5 - / G5 - - - /
    Lake Geneva shoreline
    / G5 - - - / - - - - /
    To make records with a mobile
    / - - F5 - / G5 - - - /
    We didn't have much time
    / G5 - - - / - - - - /
    Frank Zappa and the Mothers
    / - - F5 - / G5 - - - /
    Were at the best place around
    / G5 - - - / - - - - /
    But some stupid with a flare gun
    / - - F5 - / G5 - - - /
    Burned the place to the ground
     
    Chorus:
    / C5 - - - / Ab5 - - - / G5 - - - / - - - - /
    Smoke on the water, and fire in the sky
    / C5 - - - / Ab5 - - - /
    Smoke on the water
     
    Main Riff x2
     
    / G5 - - - / - - - - /
    They burned down the gambling house
    / - - F5 - / G5 - - - /
    It died with an awful sound
    / G5 - - - / - - - - /
    The funky Claude was running in and out
    / - - F5 - / G5 - - - /
    Pulling kids outa the ground
    / G5 - - - / - - - - /
    When it all was over
    / - - F5 - / G5 - - - /
    We had to find another place
    / G5 - - - / - - - - /
    But Swiss time was running out
    / - - F5 - / G5 - - - /
    It seemed that we would lose the race
     
    Chorus
     
    Main Riff x2
     
    / G5 - - - / - - - - /
    We ended up at the grand hotel
    / - - F5 - / G5 - - - /
    It was empty cold and bare
    / G5 - - - / - - - - /
    But with the rolling truck stones thing just outside 
    / - - F5 - / G5 - - - /
    Making our music there
    / G5 - - - / - - - - /
    With a few red lights and a few old beds
    / - - F5 - / G5 - - - /
    We make a place to sweat
    / G5 - - - / - - - - /
    No matter what we get out of this
    / - - F5 - / G5 - - - /
    I know we’ll never forget
     
    Chorus
     
    Main Riff x2
